The Alexandria area and other communities across the state and nation hosted their versions of community night out.

A great crowd was on hand to meet with Alexandria police offers and other community partners in the City of Alexandria.  With Tuesday one of the hottest days of year, the Alexandria Fire Department was creative and used their new boom truck to help cool the kids and some parents off as temperatures were in the upper 80s and lower 90s during the event.

The event featured great food and giveaways for the kids.
